Hello, I would be really grateful of some advice please. I have been having health problems for several years with little/no help from my gp. In January I was diagnosed with pernicious anaemia (which I had never heard of when I was diagnosed). I have however become increasingly concerned about my thyroid as I seem to be very symptomatic from what I have been reading up on. I have put on a lot of weight, have very dry itchy skin, a terrible rash on my face constantly, hair thinning and becoming brittle etc, etc.
I have been sent for the same blood tests - over and over again - always being told "normal". I have discovered (after asking for a copy of my results) that the Vitamin B was picked up in 2015 from the blood tests but I was told was normal. I'm not very good at interpreting these things so wondered if anyone could give me some information on the results for my Thyroid. All are within range but I wondered if they are getting "worse" or "better" or if I should just shut up and accept that not being able to function is basically what is going to be my life from now on.
Range are (0.27 - 4.20 TSH) (11.0 - 25.0 T4)
The results by year...
Sept 2014 Serum TSH level 1.54 Serum Free T4 level 17.5
June 2014 Serum TSH Level 1.17 Serum Free T4 level 17.7
December 2016 Serum TSH level 1.75 Serum Free T4 16.6
December 2016 (end of month) Serum TSH level 1.57 Serum Free T4 16.3
There were other blood tests between these dates but thyroid wasn't checked. I understand they are all within range but I just feel so unwell, and its getting worse. My GP has basically said he has no idea what is going on as everything is "normal" which I assume means within range. Any advice or insight would be really useful for me right now as I'm at my wits end and really starting to struggle with keeping on top of my job.
Thanks in advance.
